Find newlywed bliss at the most seductive spots on earth.

Sexiest Urban Hideaway
Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles

Step onto the grounds of the Hotel Bel-Air, and you won't believe you're in Los Angeles. Located in a wooded canyon near busy Sunset Boulevard, this country estate-like escape, with its weeping willows and swan pond, is a little piece of the Cotswolds in California. And if you don't think “storybook romance” is your idea of sexy, you'd be surprised who does. Just ask Angelina Jolie and George Clooney, both of whom stay here. The place may look ladylike, but it has a naughty reputation—generations of stars, including Marilyn Monroe, carried on affairs in these rooms. Get lost together among the shady magnolia trees and you'll feel like secret lovers—and, as any married couple can confirm, there's nothing sexier than that. Doubles from $395 (year-round); 800-648-4097; —Ellen Klugman
